A 12-year old boy buries his head against his father's torso, wrapping his arms around his father's waist as well. The father's arm are wrapped around the boy's shoulder. The family tragically lost their 17-year old son to gang violence. In El Salvador, where the family lived when the boy was murdered, the child homicide rate is among the highest in the world. Many families migrating to the United States from Central America, including El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, are trying to escape violence and poverty. The humanitarian crisis at the U.S. border is putting families and children at risk. Children's rights continue to be violated. Save the Children is helping families and children in urgent need of assistance. Photo credit:  Tom Pilston / Save the Children, May 2017.
